MNCM Annual Reports

Each year, MNCM releases an annual report to the community highlighting key accomplishments. We welcome your engagement and ongoing input on how we can continue to evolve our services to support continuous improvement.

MNCM offers a dynamic option to review data on publicly reported measures.  MNHealthScores is where you can find unbiased, trustworthy information on how hospitals, medical groups and clinics perform on both clinical quality and cost measures. This information can be used to inform smart choices about medical care.  Specifically, it helps consumers:

  • Compare and choose clinics based on quality and cost ratings
  • Understand the care you should expect to receive and what questions to ask your doctor
  • Learn how to save money on your care

The information collected to create the ratings on this site comes from a wide variety of sources including clinic, medical group and hospital electronic health records; insurance company claims databases; state databases; and national databases.  The data submitted by clinics and medical groups are checked for accuracy before being included on MNHealthScores. The information is updated regularly; most clinic, medical group and hospital ratings are updated annually.

Community Reports

The reports provide comparative data and analysis that help consumers know how care varies across providers, help providers understand how their measures compare to others and where their biggest improvement opportunities are, and help health care payers and other purchasers better understand and improve value for money that is spent on health care.

This report highlights health care cost trends and drivers of cost growth in the region and includes data that consumers can use to compare costs of different providers.
